Spot a newcomer to your neighborhood? Operators are standing by at The Dish Hotline.
1) North Beach: Our long national froyo nightmare is over: following an actual year of battling red tape and various vehement neighborhood groups, Swirl Culture (née Honeydoo) finally opened yesterday at 11am. As is the growing tradition amongst new frozen yogurt shops, they handed out free gifts—this time, t-shirts—to opening day customers. 1400 Grant Avenue, at Green; (415) 397-9475; website [EaterWire]
2) The Marina: A bit later than planned, neighborhood staple The Grove reopened over the weekend. The "new" space is bigger, having taken over the retail space next door, and as a commenter pointed out during last week's post-plywood report, it bears a much stronger resemblance to the Fillmore Street location. And the WiFi remains, for those interested in such matters. 2250 Chestnut Street, at Avila; (415) 474-4843 [EaterWire]
